> I'm writing to you guys because there's been a girl missing from one of the

> I've attached a picture. This is a school picture so please keep in mind
> that students *really* look different in their "street" clothes.
> I'm just hoping that some of you guys on the mainland might recognize her.
> She "ran" away from home and is thought to be with her boyfriend. Not much

> police efforts have been infuriating because I'm used to the American idea

> So, once again, her info:
> Name: Kim, Mikyoung
> School: Daejeong Girls High School
> Age 16/17, possibly 18
> Height- about 5'1''
> Frame- thin but not super thin, tanned/ dark skin
> If I had to say what struck me about her was her dark eyes- they were almost
> black.. once again, I realize thats desribing 99.9% of Koreans but they were
> *really* dark and bright at the same time... she almost looked like the girl
> from welcome to dongmakgul.. Mikyoung is prettier in person than the
> picture.. sorry, again..
> So, this is in the hopes that she can be found.
> p.s. maybe if you guys can send this to other people who are in Korea who
> might spot her... there are teachers at the school that do worry about her.
> Thanks guys!
